Episode 3 BOSS LADIES premieres with intimate Q&A with WILD author Cheryl Strayed

The Chasing Grace Project is a docuseries about adversity and resilience among women in the technology industry. Its candid approach to storytelling has been applauded for elevating women’s voices in an industry that has fewer women than 30 years ago (NCWIT) but desperately needs women’s contributions to build the technologies that are defining our future. It uses the power of story to change the culture in tech, which is cited as the primary reason women don’t pursue tech careers or choose to leave. Strayed’s own story, as detailed in her memoir WILD and major motion picture produced by and starring Reese Witherspoon, is among the best examples of the power of story for women. By stepping into her authentic story, Strayed’s own life and career have been transformed and her journey through adversity to resilience depicted in her memoir can inspire others. Strayed’s involvement in the Chasing Grace Project will increase awareness of women in tech’s experiences, which can lead to cross-industry conversations that empower all women around the world.

A Boris Karloff Double-Bill for Halloween

Universal Studios was the undisputed master of horror and the macabre during the 1930s and 40s. The Alex Film Society celebrates the Halloween season with two films featuring the studios’ most popular stars…Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi. The Old Dark House (1932) was assumed to be a lost classic until a film negative was discovered in the Universal vaults in 1968. It has since assumed cult-like status among fans of director James Whale, who helmed Frankenstein (1931), and Bride of Frankenstein (1935). Whale packed his offbeat take on horror with star talent including Melvyn Douglas, Charles Laughton, Raymond Massey, Gloria Stuart and of course Karloff. AFS will be screening a glorious new 4K digital restoration. The Raven (1935) teams Karloff with his frequent onscreen nemesis, Bela Lugosi. The picture highlights Edgar Allen Poe’s famous poem and features Lugosi as a Poe-obsessed mad surgeon who just happens to have a torture chamber in his basement. Karloff is a fugitive murderer on the lam who falls victim to Lugosi’s mad schemes. Both actors were at the height of their fame, making this fast-paced thriller one of Universal’s best offerings.

INTERIOR/EXTERIOR is an exhibition by New York-based American artist Darryl Westly.

Westley's work alludes to a mental space, most likely on a screen reflecting back at you, which compounds into a physical space, such as a list of handwritten hashtags or an intimate selfie snapped in some exotic bathroom beyond. That place between one’s mind and body is the vortex of the show. INTERIOR/EXTERIOR ponders our inherited confusion of contemporary perspective. In Westly’s paintings exist a universe of confirmation bias, skewed planes, disjointed landscapes, and pixelated architecture; an odalisque cuddling with HelloKitty, a patio table set before a pop-up window selling sex, and a Greco-Roman muse precariously balanced in front of an African American field worker, likely a slave. In these paintings, Westly visually walks the viewer back to a cozy place in Plato’s cave and describes to the children of the internet yet another way to comb through mediated reality. Exhibition on display until December 21, 2019.
